Just for fun, here's an update to the graph with the US numbers that I've logged every day for this series. The numbers still seem to be tailing away from the exponential trend lines.


As mentioned in previous posts, here is a visualization tool for mapping the cases of COVID-19 occurrences.

According to the site, this morning's worldwide number of reported cases was 1,617,204 with 364,686 recoveries, 97,039 fatalities, and 466,299 cases in the US.

In the US, the site reports 26,522 recoveries, 16,686 deaths, and 18,633 cases in the state of Pennsylvania.
